Legal team help school children stay safe

23rd August 2021

Just before the end of term we teamed up with Sidmouth Primary School to supply and sponsor their vital high-visibility vests.

The high-visibility vests are instrumental in ensuring the children and teachers feel safe and comfortable whilst out on their daily adventures and will be seen! They will be used on visits within the local community, particularly when children are walking to and from a venue.

Managing Partner Terry Bastyan said “This is an excellent way to give back to the community whilst strengthening our relationship with the school.  We are delighted to be in a position to help.  As a firm we are very committed to our local community, we feel it important to give back to help make a difference when we can”.

Sarah Prince, Deputy Head of Teaching and Learning said:  ‘We are so grateful to Gilbert Stephens for the donation of the jackets. Our children’s safety is of paramount importance to us and to know we can take the children out and about safely is wonderful. Thank you for your generosity.’

Adam Tompkins and Laura Newberry-Butcher from our Sidmouth office joined the primary school pupils during their last week of term and treated them all to an ice cream from Taste in Sidmouth, whilst admiring their visibility!
